  • iTwin - Jailbreakless Way to Access Your iPhone's Info


    Just released is iTwin v1.4Final, a Windows app which lets you access your iPhone's db's from your PC, in a decent UI. The author describes the app as

    a program for the Windows PC, that will show the content of your iPhone/iPod Touch databases in a quite familliar 'Look & Feel'. You will have access to your 'Contacts', your 'SMS', to the 'Calendar' and to your 'Notes'. In addition iTwin will generate a 'Birthday-List' including 'Zodics' out of your contact details.

    iTwin can read your databases in two different ways. If your device is 'jailbroken' then you have instant access to your data via 'WiFi'. The second way is by analysing the 'iTunes-Backup-Files', where it is not nessesary to have a 'modified' iPhone or iPod Touch !
    No OS X version is listed, nor is one planned it seems. All you Windows folks may enjoy this one though. The "no jailbreak" option is a bit less than 100% accurate - it works from your iTunes Backup Files, as stated. That's great as long as you sync often - otherwise you're looking at old info. You should be syncing often anyway.

    The app could be a great way to have a separate backup of important info somewhere, or just to have your info handy if you prefer a larger screen for viewing.

If I go to import and I can select a database and click copy files and it goes through and says finished but then the error pops up again. My contacts did show but I can not edit or do anything with them nor can I export them. I have not tried to SSH yet since I’m getting to many errors this way.
      “‘03.11.2006’ ist kein guliges Datum” means invalid date i think thats a separate issue, at least its seperate from the "ist kein gultiger integerwert"
      or "is not a valid integer" that i was getting that would not allow me to import.

      according to the website the Export feature is disabled until it is working properly, I think this program is very beta. and according to the website what u see is all there is at the moment. export certainly seems planned not sure about edit tho i hope so.

      google translate works good for understanding the errors http://translate.google.com/translat...n&sl=de&tl=en#

So no chinese / japanese / korean etc. for the moment ... sorry, but i will do my best. But i need your help. 1st: Use my forum to state your problems and your ideas, because this thread is not the best place to collect all that and 2nd: In order to correct the integer-bug i need a faulty database (Calendar.sqlitedb) out of your data-folder because i can not simulate (and find) this bug without. I know, that it contains your private data, but maybe somebody doesn't care ... I promise, i will delete it after i found the bug. 3rd: I need a few more people who like to test a beta-version from time to time. Interested ? Register on my site. Thanks for your help and your feedback. And please, don't hesitate to ask in english.
      Cheers ... SittingDuck


      Anyway to make it so we can input info into the contacts, notes, ect..and upload it to the phone/touch?

      Anyone know of a program that can do that?

      I wish you could send sms from this app. That would be cool so you could be on you computer and still send and receive them. I know that sounds lazy

      iTwin V1.6 Final is ready. Despite a few bugfixes, the SMS and Notes - Export in HTML or plain texformat is the big 'Highlight' of this version. Possible situation: Some SMS have been (accidentally) deleted, but should be nevertheless displayed on your iPhone. In this case it is now possible with iTwin to do a HTML-Export using an older backup and then show them on your iPhone-Safari. iPhone-Apps like 'FilesLite' or 'FileAid' will then be useful for the Import. However: First Feedback shows an Error-Message, when you try to save outside the iTwin-folder, especially with the SMS-Export. Solution: Use the iTwin-Program-Folder for saving your Export-Files only. Have fun ...

      Is there a way for itwin to copy sms from a old backup to a new backup or something?

      Because I have a new backup of my iphone, I want to do a fresh start of my iphone but still have my messages, only current way I have been able to do this is by restoring from backup which has the messages.

      So if I was to do a fresh copy of my iphone, then back it up, would I be able to somehow copy the backed up messages from my old backup to the new one?

      As far as I can see, Apple didn't change the database-format with OS 3.0 At least it's working for me ... (iPhone 1.Gen, iPod Touch 2.Gen) Feedback from Your side would be nice of course ...
